want to create gardens that really
are truly meaningful and touch
people," says Virginia Burt, FASLA,
the founder and principal of Virginia
Burt Designs in Burlington, Ontario,
Canada, and Cleveland, Ohio. She'd
been practicing nine years by the
time she was invited to start on a partner track at JSW+ Associates in Richmond Hill, Ontario, but said she was
looking for more in her own work.
"My personal life was deeper and
more meaningful than the kind of
work that I was doing, and I said, 'You
know what? I wanted to be more.'"

Burt could have easily gone down
a number of paths. She is an avid
skier and author, and thought at one
point she would go into veterinary
medicine. But since high school she
had known exactly what she wanted
to do. "My brother brought home a
woman for Thanksgiving who was in
landscape architecture, and I was like,
'I love drawing. I like being outside. I
love nature. Oh, my God, you get paid
to do stuff like that?'" She was so sure
of her path that during an entrance
interview for the landscape architecture program at the University of

Guelph, she remembers fielding the
question, "What's your plan if you're
not accepted?" with an immediate:
"There is no plan; I'm getting in."
Her firm's portfolio includes residential, commercial, and institutional
projects, but her passion lies in the
soul of each design, no matter the
type. As she sees it, a design should
act in both a psychological and emotional capacity to heal what ails us,
or spur vivid memories and strong
emotional responses. She deals in
what she calls "emotional intelligence
